Great Value: Extra Virgin
Happy Hour at Extra Virgin on a Friday night is a heck of a deal no matter how you cut it. Located next door to his fine dining restaurant, Michael Smith Restaurant, in the Crossroads, you’ll find a more casual menu at Extra Virgin with creative tapas drawn from international inspiration. From 4 to 6 p.m., kick off your First Friday, or really any Friday, by enjoying half price tapas like pork belly steamed buns, duck tongue tacos, Spanish meatballs and chicken thighs stuffed with chorizo and fig. Additionally, you’ll get $2 off all cocktails and wines by the glass and $2.50 on select beers.
Good Deal: McGonigle’s Market
For half a century, the high-quality butcher counter at family-run McGonigle's Market has offered a variety of fresh meats and seafood in Kansas City. Meanwhile, the white trailer outside the shop offers excellent grilled and barbecued items, made with quality meats from the butcher counter inside, every day of the week. Order and pay inside, then bring your ticket outside where your food is made to order. On Fridays, they cook up half a rotisserie smoked chicken, lightly dressed with barbecue sauce, for only $3.99. Add to your finger-licking feast with side dishes like baked beans, cheesy corn, onion straws or waffle fries.
